      Performance is good but as you know how our dear LTA restricted it and SMRT core maintenance?

      E500s are the noisiest DDs after the CDGEs IMO.

      You are clearly over exaggerating. VSOs are so much noisier than them, among some others. 

      The wrights procured at the time the ADLs were brought in were equally noisy too, if not noisier.

      Believe it or not, in terms of performance ADL is superior to the B9..

    • Volvo Super Olympian are loud because of the radiator . When the driver of a VSO steps on the accelerator , the infamous SUCKING sound is heard .

      I mean CDGEs and newer those buses. For the WEGs, it's mainly the loud radiators that cause them to be noisy, not really the engine unlike for the E500s where the engine is mainly the cause.

      If thats the case how many bloody varients of DDs are there to begin with? This makes it a non-issue since at worst the ADL is only beaten by 2 variants of buses. Not as loud as you would think after all is it!

      Regarding noise. B9s are really not that much quieter even if we take away the radiator problem. Sure I admit that ADLs are generally loud at a stop, but when its moving both are just equally loud. Just go try it for yourself! The ADLs just SEEM to be louder since it has a lower pitched noise.

      I have seen E500 with both bad engine and loud radiator and the results are more terrible then you think . 

      KUB lousy Radiator tops the "how loud can my bus radiator gets" ranking .
